During the Crimean War, Florence Nightingale became famous as 'The Lady with the Lamp' as she made rounds of the wounded at night. One soldier wrote home that the men kissed her shadow on the wall when she passed. Conditions in the "hospital" in Scutari, Turkey, were appalling. No operating tables, no medical supplies, no furniture. The best wounded soldiers could hope for was to be laid on the floor wrapped in a blanket. Rats ran among the dying. Florence fought to improve conditions.

The photo was taken in 1910. It’s the last photograph taken of Florence Nightingale. (It's rare: she was reluctant throughout her life to be photographed.) It shows 90 year old Florence in her bedroom at her home in London. The photo was taken by Lizzie Caswall Smith. On the back of the photo Smith wrote, “Taken just before she died, house near Park Lane. The only photograph I ever took out of studio. I shall never forget the experience.”
